iTunes 8.2 Available: Avoid if Your iPhone is Jailbroken

Share:

Just a quick note for all the jailbroken iPhone users out there. Yesterday Apple released version 8.2 of iTunes. If you possess a jailbroken iPhone and plan to jailbreak in the future, the iPhone Dev Team has advised everyone to avoid the update for now.

Here’s what iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd had to say about this:

Today’s iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they try to identify what’s connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2. (These are probably *not* anti-jailbreak maneuvers, just Apple changing protocols that normally only Apple cares about.)

This latest version of iTunes will now bring support for iPhone OS 3.0 for iPhones and iPod Touches. This recent update is a sign that OS 3.0 is just around the corner. Given that WWDC 2009 is kicking off on June 8th, it is safe to say we won’t have to wait much longer!

    The release is so new it doesn’t register as an available update?

  • I am running iTunes 8.2 now. My 1st gen, jailbroken iPhone has no issues syncing, backing up, or anything. I guess install 8.2 at your own risk, but it works for me.

    When 3.0 comes out…how do i un-jailbreak my phone? do I just install 3.0 and it overwrites the hack? because i am excited to try 3.0.

    Although I would suggest following the advice of those who know more than me, I accidentally upgraded iTunes to 8.2. I have experienced no problems with my jailbroken iphone; synchronization and all other features seem to be working as before. YRMVH.

    They did not say you will have problems using your jailbroken iPhone with iTunes 8.2, what they said is if you plan to jailbreak an iPhone you will have problems because the iTunes 8.2 update causes problems for QuickPwn and PwnageTool. If you have already jailbroken then you have no problem!

    If I inadvertently upgraded to the new iphone update, is there a way to go back to the former version?
